SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - PLAYGROUND TWIST


SIOUXSIE AND THE BANSHEES - 'Playground Twist'/'Pulled To Bits' (Polydor POSP 59) July 1979

The unique sounding and loner type Banshees served up the song 'Playground Twist' in the Summer of '79 tackling the subject of child cruelty and looking at life in general as a playground. This completely uncommercial single crept into the Top 30 which was a good achievement bearing in mind that daytime radio wouldn't have touched this at all.

The record was housed in a picture sleeve drawn by a handicapped kid from Kuwait. Another bold move by The Banshees who despised the record industry and refused to 'play along' with their rules.
